An important part of our mission is to bring the idea of sustainable living to life, to pass on our knowledge and to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

At Taino Farm, we not only run a diverse mix of organic farming and permaculture-inspired fruit and vegetable cultivation, but also one of the largest aquaponic fish farming systems in the Dominican Republic.

A small apiary, small animal husbandry and other agriculturally relevant projects such as worm houses or the processing of our products, as well as our farm tours, make the farm a lively place full of diversity and many different projects.

We offer various educational opportunities for tourists, schoolchildren and students. The internship program is particularly important to us, as it enables participants to be an active part of our project over a longer period of time and to acquire comprehensive knowledge in the process. It also offers space to develop and implement their own ideas and projects.

The internship program includes the following learning areas:

  • Aquaponics

  • Organic farming

  • Permaculture-inspired landscape design

  • Intercultural exchange and active involvement in our community

  • Eco tourism

Our standard intern program includes three months of intensive living and learning on the Taino farm. By arrangement, it is also possible to shorten or extend the program. We are happy to cater to special interests regarding the learning areas and design the learning objectives together with our interns.

The program includes accommodation, meals and training and is subject to a fee. Basic knowledge of Spanish is a prerequisite for participation.
